FRONT PORCHES With More Than Just Curb Appeal By Julie Achtermeier

T

here’s a lot to be said about having great curb appeal but it’s a bonus when you can make your front porch, and yard, more functional as well. Following some basic guidelines can make it a more palatable task and ensure the results are stunning. The first step is to assess your porch’s potential, and limitations. While having a full seating area on your porch may sound tempting, if your porch is small and confined, too much seating may not be possible. You want your porch to be inviting and look like an extension of your home and gardens.

Creative_Living_DP_Front_Porches.indd 1

2018-06-07 11:19 AM


17

Establish a Connection Between Your Porch and Yard. While a specific theme is not necessary, a

consistent look will create a beautiful flow from your walkway to your front door. Before tackling the porch itself, trim overgrown shrubs and ensure the pathway is tidy and easy to navigate. An abrupt change from your yard to your porch can create harsh lines and look disorganized. An easy first step for blending the porch into the gardens is to use potted plants which give a seamless flow and add a punch of colour to your front entrance. For homes with rocks, stone or bricks instead of gardens, use window boxes to add depth and pizzazz to your windows and place tall urns with cascading flowers on either side of your front door. Longer walkways can be edged in hostas or low-lying shrubs to add texture while shorter ones should be kept clean and simple.

Be Unique. If you’re searching for a unique feature to add to your front entrance, consider adding an arbour to the walkway, a hand-painted welcome sign, a macramé plant holder or wall art. Adding your own unique touches brings a personalized feel and creates a great topic of conversation. Make the Front Door a Focal Point. The trend these days is to showcase vibrant doors painted a different colour from the garage or shutters. Don’t be confined to the tried and true “safe” colour theme of a white garage door and white front door, or likewise in black or beige. If you have a white garage door and flecks of red in the brick, try a red door. Choose a colour that corresponds with the brick colour while enhancing the existing doors and windows. If a coloured front door is a bit too much change, try adding new wall sconces or an overhead chandelier. Include a Seating Area. No matter the size of your

porch, designers agree that including an area of seating immediately draws a connection between the inside and outside of your home. For a small porch, place a rocking chair with a colourful cushion beside the door. A wide porch on an older house could showcase an old-fashioned looking bench, or a modern set of two chairs and a table can enhance a newer home. Seating is also a great way to encourage you to spend more time outside engaging with your neighbours, or people-watching over a cup of coffee.

HOME IMPROVEMENT LOAN OPTIONS IN CANADA

BY JULIE ACHTERMEIER here are various ways to finance a home renovation depending on the size and estimated cost of the project. Before you start looking into financing options, take a moment to investigate whether you qualify for an energy-savings grant. There are some renovation grants and rebates available across Canada at both the federal and provincial levels. Some are offered by local utility companies so be sure to check online for any that apply to your area.

While establishing a budget for your renovation, it may be worth speaking to a financial advisor who can help determine how much you can afford so you can plan realistically. Also consider how handy you are and how much work, if any, you are willing to do yourself to save labour costs.

PERSONAL LOAN

A personal loan is a set borrowed amount with a variable or fixed interest rate and a structured repayment schedule. Once the loan is repaid, you must reapply to your lender if you require new funds in the future.

PERSONAL LINE OF CREDIT

A line of credit is a popular choice for financing renovations, and many homeowners already have one at their disposal. It is an ideal option for ongoing or long-term home improvements since it lets you access your funds at any time and lets you decide how much to pay back each month. A line of credit will always offer a lower interest rate than credit cards and charges interest only on funds used each month. As your balance is paid off, you can access any remaining funds (up to the limit) without reapplying.

SECURED LINES OF CREDIT/HOME EQUITY LOANS

Just like a personal line of credit, this option allows you to borrow and repay funds based on your schedule, and your home equity secures the funds. A home equity loan typically has a fixed interest rate while a home equity line of credit typically has a variable rate. Both offer preferred interest rates and are easy to set up. However, initial set-up costs including legal and appraisal fees usually apply, and loan amounts are often limited to 80 percent of your home’s value.

MORTGAGE REFINANCING

If your mortgage is due for renewal, refinancing your mortgage lets you spread repayment over a longer period at mortgage interest rates, which are usually much lower than credit card or personal loan rates. As with secured lines of credit and home equity loans, this type of financing can allow you to borrow up to 80 percent of your home’s appraised value (less any outstanding mortgage balance). In some cases, you may need to pay initial set-up costs including legal and appraisal fees. If you’re purchasing a home and planning improvements right away, it may be worth including the estimated costs of your new mortgage. CMHC Mortgage Loan Insurance can help you obtain financing for both the purchase of your home and the renovations with a minimum down payment starting at 5 percent.
